Urgh. I've just committed the "check_tree_conflict() returns the
conflict" part of my patch, thinking that would be useful for you too. I
had forgotten, since seeing your branch patch a day or two ago, that
you'd done something similar but different. I only did that tonight in
order to get somewhere with skipping, and I only did "skipping" tonight
because it got mentioned today and I thought it was time I went back to

But I see that skipping in update is very closely involved with sending
notifications, which is what you're doing. So I'll try to let you
continue without me doing too much that overlaps. But I might still
commit small incremental improvements. I hope that won't be a problem.

I'll go back to "merge --into-conflicted" tomorrow. I've started coding
(the easy bit - passing a flag along to the callbacks) but next I need
to write a test or two for it, to have a scenario in which to try it

Mail exchanges like this one. Committing frequently.

No, I'd like it if you could carry on with tree-conflicts-notify. But if
that's difficult because the structure of the code isn't good (such as
where it's supposed to check for existing conflicts and then check
whether it's causing a new tree conflict, but doesn't do it in that
order in all cases), then maybe what I'm showing in
"skip-inside-conflicts-3.patch" will be useful.

Don't worry about committing something that might get in my way: if you
commit something that's an improvement, I'll gladly merge it into
whatever work I have in progress.

Have a good sleep instead, perhaps. Good night,
